A traffic stop on Interstate 80 leads to the seizure of 206 pounds of marijuana and two arrests.

Around 9:30 a.m., Thursday, April 24, a trooper stopped an eastbound 2013 Chrysler minivan about two miles west of the Overton exit on I-80 for lane departure/failure to maintain lane. A Dawson County Sheriff’s Department canine indicated the odor of drugs coming from the vehicle. A search of the vehicle led to the seizure of 206.3 lbs. of marijuana. The marijuana in vacuum sealed bags was contained in six trash bags in the cargo area of the minivan.

The driver of the vehicle, Mailee Xiong (FM), 44, and a passenger in the vehicle, Xou Vang (M), 43, both of St. Paul, Minnesota, were both lodged in the Dawson County Jail each on a charge of Possession with Intent to Deliver.
